Description

This is undoubtedly one of the very best St Emilions this year, with no hint of the excessive dryness of tannin which marked some others from this appellation. The bouquet has hints of black plum, raspberry and blackcurrant while on the palate there is a beguiling creamy texture, with huge intensity. The finish is long and the tannins very fine-grained. There is a slight toasty note from new oak but such is the concentration of fruit that this will be comfortably absorbed in a short while. The correct balancing acidity imparts a lovely freshness to the wine.
